Race isn’t an issue, but maybe…

…religion could be. The Washington Post has the story on the number of Latin American immigrants (specifically women, in this article) who are converting to Islam: 40- to 70 thousand.

As you read the article, pay close attention to how “respect for women” in Islam is defined by the latinas who are interviewed (hint: see page 5 of the article).

I believe this understanding of respect for women is one of the attractions of Islam (for women).
